Introduction to container candle making half day in Henstridge near Stalbridge Dorset Somerset

Containers with candles made in a craft workshop in Dorset Somerset

About the Course

Come along to learn how to make container candles in a relaxed, friendly group and make three candles in glass containers and teacups to take home. This course is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Learn to use fragrances and colours in making candles in glass containers and teacups. This is a great place to start learning the craft of candle making.

During this 3 hour workshop you will find out about the different kinds of candles which can be made along with different types of wax for specific types of candles, and how to add fragrances and colours. We will be concentrating on starting with the basics of container candle making.

You will be making two container candles as well as a teacup and saucer candle and by adding choices of colour and fragrances.

All the supplies used for our candle making are vegan-friendly including soy wax, fragrances and colour dyes.

Maximum number on workshop is currently 2 people for July (and may increase to 4 people in August).

Larger groups can be accomodated in a workshop arranged specifically for you on a mutually agreeable date from Aug/Sept 2020.

This workshop can also be arranged as an online Workshop (individuals and groups) with kits being sent out in advance by post. Please enquire for prices, kits and options.

We will have time to discuss using repurposed containers for candles such as tin cans and jam jars. Also we can discuss making other kinds of candles such as pillar candles, wax melts, floating candles, striped candles, and much more.

Didnt realise how technical it was to achieve great and consistent candles. Going to a class reminds you there's always something new to learn. Thanks Sally. Great session. Lovely candles to take home. We will definitely give it a go.

Sally is a great teacher. Her preparation for the course was very thorough. She gave me great notes for reference and lots of sensible, practical advice. She is planning a soap making course which I will certainly make sure to attend.

My partner and I attended Sally's brilliant course on candle making using containers. Sally is an excellent tutor. She covered all aspects of candle making from health and safety, materials needed, adding colour and fragrances and the processes. The session was informal giving everyone the opportunity to experiment and ask questions. Sally makes everyone feel relaxed and able to achieve. After the session Sally follows this up with an email providing information on our learning experience as well as links to information for buying resources. A great session. Many thanks Sally.

I signed up for this workshop because I buy a lot of candles and thought it might be fun to try making my own for a change. It was such a good decision - Sally is the perfect tutor and makes the workshop a truly creative and informative occasion. I would recommend it for anyone who fancies trying something a little "crafty" - no previous experience required! I came home with three gorgeous smelling candles, one in my own cup and saucer which I am thrilled to display in my bathroom.
